Internationally-renowned poet Lemn Sissay will be appearing at Redbridge Central Library tonight (Thurs) to launch Black History Month.
Lemn, who was an official poet for the London Olympics, is the author of several books of poetry alongside articles, records, public art, and plays.
He is also associate artist at Southbank Centre, patron of The Letterbox Club and The Reader Organisation, and inaugural trustee of World Book Night.
He will be reading his poems at the event, which starts at 7.30pm at the library in Clements Road, Ilford.
While Lemn’s head is in London where he’s based, his heart is in Manchester where he is not, his soul is in Addis and his vibe is in New York where his mother lives.
Tickets cost £6 or £4.50 concessions from thelittleboxoffice.com/vision.
